Fitness trackers don’t have to be expensive. Why spend almost $300 or even $400 on an Apple Watch when you can snag an all-in-one fitness tracker and smartwatch for less than cheap dinner for two? We’re talking about HalfSun.


HalfSun is the dirt-cheap, sleek fitness tracker available on Amazon that packs all the features you need (heart rate monitor, step counter, calories burned, distance – you get the idea) into a cheap, comfortable package. It’s got a 1.3” IPS HD screen, IP67 waterproof rating, and “skin-friendly material” (aka silicone) on the wristband that doesn’t irritate or chafe your skin. And yes – it has all the smart-connected features you can’t live without, like text message alerts, incoming calls and even connectivity to Facebook Messenger and Skype from your phone.

Perhaps most importantly, however…is that it tracks blood pressure. Flip this feature on, and it will automatically check blood pressure and heart rate every 10 minutes. And yes- – unlike a lot of cheap fitness watches, the blood-pressure tracking actually works. The big-brand fitness trackers don’t do this…at least not for this price. So what it lacks in extra features and high-end quality, it makes up for in budget price and BP-tracking.


Is the HalfSun the best quality fitness tracker you’re gonna find? Nope. But when it costs 1/3 what the FitBit does and a fraction of an Apple Watch, it’s a good way to get into the Fitness Tracker World on a budget…and keep an eye on your BP at the same time.
